I love the look of sailfish and would probably use it as my primary os. But I would love to be able to try out Ubuntu Touch on it or Android or Gnome 3 Or another Linux OS for fun. Is this possible with the Jolla Tablet?

I think booting an alternate OS from a card makes it easier to keep having a functional tablet, while still being able to tinker with alternative Operating systems. But installing on the internal flash could be useful as well.

I'd expect Nemo Mobile and Plasma Active to be other usable options, especially since they share most of the middlewre with Sailfish (Mer and etc.). What I'd like is some easy way to enable multiboot. For example booting from sdcard would be very welcome.
